The Shades – One Touch of Heaven

He loved her, she didn’t love him and now he’s dead. And best of all, he’s now watching her from heaven, somehow able to communicate his predicament to the rest of us but not to her. Tragic – and rather creepy – stuff.

But no, best of all is the sound of this song: that great lead vocal, the awkward lyrics and phrasing, the superb (presumably angelic) backing vocals, the denseness of the production and, especially for me, the fumbling, crashing drums that sound as though they were played by an eight-year-old.
